The Iditarod 2014 Ceremonial Start started at 10 a.m. Alaska time today. It should end between the 9th and 21st of March. The Iditarod Sled Dog race will start from Willow as planned. Each team consists of 12 to 16 dogs and their musher cover over 1150 miles in 8 to 20 days. The dogs were off at 2:00 p.m. Eastern time. It was exciting. I gathered interesting  information about the race. The pictures below are beautiful, too!  It was rumored Sarah would host the ceremonial start but no mention was made.  Reaction as we watched the start:  “Watching the teams take off.. the Siberian vs. Alaskan huskies is an interesting match-up given the current politics between Russia and the US.”  Rob Hart.
